Taking a trip to Dundee

Less than 2 hours from Glasgow, Dundee is known as Scotland's City of Discovery in honour of the city's history of scientific activities and of the Royal Research Ship Discovery - an Antarctic exploration vessel - which was built in Dundee and is now proudly berthed in the city harbour. Whether you're visiting the stunning V&A design museum or spending the afternoon at Verdant Works to learn about Dundee's industrial textile heritage, you can guarantee an abundance of culture whilst spending time in this cool and creative city. With their own distinctive slang, Dundonians are known for their friendly nature and vibrancy - a perfect representation of the place they call home!

Scotland's City of Discovery

Previously ranked as the city with the best quality of life in the UK, Dundee is located on the north coast of the Firth of Tay, which leads out into the North Sea. Although it might be a little too chilly for a swim (we're still in Scotland, after all!), it does provide some beautiful seaside walks. Heading further inland, you can find Dundee Law - an excellent hill walk to the summit of an extinct volcano that was central to Dundee’s defences for thousands of years. When you travel to Dundee with Citylink you'll arrive at Seagate Bus Station, in the heart of the city, refreshed and raring to explore!
